Newark NJ Police Search for Suspect in Non-Fatal Shooting

Newark New Jersey Assault LawyersPolice in Newark New Jersey are investigating the recent non-fatal shooting of a man on a city street.

The violent incident went down a short time before 7:00 p.m. near the intersection of 7th Street and 4th Avenue in Newark, NJ. The Newark Police Department received a report of gunshots being fired and dispatched police officers to the area.

When Newark NJ police got to the scene of the shooting, the victim had already left the scene and was on his way to Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, New Jersey. Doctors at the Belleville NJ hospital treated the victim for a gunshot wound. Officials have not yet released a status report on the victim, although it is believed that the victim survived and was later listed in stable condition.

Meanwhile, the Newark Police Department is actively investigating the shooting. According to Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose, Newark investigators are still trying to figure out if there was a motive for the shooting.

Assuming that Newark police can eventually identify and apprehend the culprit, it is likely that serious criminal charges for aggravated assault and illegal handgun possession would follow.

If the shooter is convicted on the most serious charges of aggravated assault, they would face severe criminal penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon such as a firearm or a knife is a second degree felony. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison.
